Carson Pass

Instagram photos and videos at Carson Pass

A day on the mountain is the best way to detoxify our mind and body. It’s wildflowers season at over 8,000 ft elevation. #carsonpass

The wildflowers were wonderful at Winnemucca Lake above Carson Pass on Saturday. It was a beautiful day and a great hike with Mary, Katie and Dennis and Tiffany Zabaglo.
Just stop and look up. ๐ŸŽˆ#explorecalifornia
I don't actually know where this was. It was a little pull over area next to the highway with a neat view. Snapped this while he was stretching and talking  #higbway #travel #california
Those dreamy light rays though๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ Snapped a few pics then just stood here and watched them slowly fade away. Light and shadows are so fascinating in the mountains. I love the way they create so many layers.

Keep it wild
It’s finally spring (in the mountains)
Sorry, plethora of Poppy shots. It’s just that Poppy was killin’ it in the Cute and Funny categories today.. First 3 are Poppy simply waiting for a cookie.. and then sitting in the car with a ridiculous look on her face. Then that one where she looks so uncomfortable but she just HAD to take a sit-and-think on some uneven rocks at Lake Winnemucca, and yawning during a quick photo shoot, and falling adorably asleep on the ride home.. #poppyseconds  #ourthirddog

With so many awesome places to run and hike, I just can’t stop going to see the flowers in Carson Pass. This journey took me from Woods Lake to Roundtop Lake (I bailed on going to 4th of July Lake due to wallball legs.) to Winnemucca Lake and back down the Woods Lake Trail. #carsonpass #roundtoplake #earnyourelevation #wildflowers #summer #sagerunner #optoutside
Somewhere a long the Carson Pass Highway. This was my first time explore this stretch of road and with secret climbing spots, alpine lakes, and endless views  can't wait to go back. โ  ..โ  .โ  .โ  .โ  .โ  .โ  โ  โ  #agameoftones #artofvisuals #createcommune #fatal.frames #fstoppers #folkgood #gallery_legit #globalcapture #illgrammers #justgoshoot #livefolk #moodygrams #mobilemag #portrait_perfection #posepatch #thecreatorclass #theimaged #thevisualcollective #weekly_feature #visualambassadors #everydayeverywhere#discoverearth #earth_portraits #earthfocus #earthofficial #earthpics #earthpix #ecology #fantastic_earth #fiftyshades_of_nature โ 
Wildflowers for days
Livin that ruff life
Round Top Lake, California
I didn’t realize how much I miss trees and alpine lakes until I moved to Southern California. Went chasing after the greenery this weekend. #hiking #wildflowers #mountains #sierranevada
Lucky my mountaineer dad can lead us off trail to places like this ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Also lucky my mountaineer dad can run after us when we go off trail unintentionally ๐Ÿ˜…
Today we became junior rangers with the U.S. Forest Service!๐ŸŒฒ We are now official Wilderness Explorers!๐Ÿ” _____ #teeyella #drexlerkendrick #wildernessexplorer #carsonpass #thekidsofthewild #usforestservice #eldoradonationalforest #officialjuniorranger  #adventure #getout #laketahoe #tahoekids #mountainkids #pct #binkybro #binkybrosquad
So I asked... Should I or shouldn’t I swim in Lake Winnemucca at 9,500 feet, with air temp below 55? The answer was all “tough love” and the water was delicious! Cold, but, yep I’d do it again!
Nothing makes me feel more settled, refreshed, reset. “Allow nature’s peace to flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.” - John Muir
#lakewinnemucca you had me at the first wildflower. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒบ I’ve been in a four year long love affair with these beauties and their vast peaks. There’s an innate pull to be in them, to know them, and dream of them later. It’s a resetting like I’ve never experienced before. Those who were there today know.  #beautifulcalifornia #sierranevadas ๐Ÿž
Beautiful. #southlaketahoe
A view of "Red Lake" from Frog's lake.  Yes, it's on the list of unsafe lakes due to toxic algae. :( More like 'green lake'.
Indian paintbrush. Taking a solid second place to Lupine as my favorite flower.
Fi found snow today on our hike!  It made her very happy!
Lake Winnemucca.
No coffee and knitting this AM, instead an early morning hike with friends to my favorite place on earth. #tahoesouth @spine.fit #carsonpasswildflowers #knittersofinstagram
Phenomenal hike to Lake Winnemucca.  Wildflowers still in bloom.  Took about 1000 photos.  Heaven! ๐Ÿ’–
Some of the spectacular wildflowers on our hike to Lake Winnemucca yesterday. #wildflowers #seulbergerfamilyreunion

From my little moon hike from last night. #hike #hiking #fullmoon #sunset #moonhike #nature
Awesome day hike, summiting a 10k foot peak, jumping off cliffs into an alpine lake, and scoping out ski lines. • • • • • • #backcountry #canon #70d #tahoe #pct  #carsonpass #canon70d #laketahoe #1855 #sierra
My happy place.
PCT | Miles 1070-1092 | Carson Pass :: Last night Jared threw me a piece of bread that hit a tree and landed in the middle of us. A standoff ensued and with neither of us willing to get out of our tents to get the piece of bread it remained in no mans land. Fast forward to 4am and I awake to Jared yelling “Brent, there’s something big outside our tents”. I look out and it’s a deer trying to get the bread. Scared the bejesus out of us lol. :: Today is the second day in a row with the definition of a beautiful summer day. 78 degrees, blue skies with a slight breeze. The terrain has been stunning with sweeping views of the valleys and mountains beyond. :: Trail Magic! First from a couple section hiking that had an extra “Stroople Waffle” and then again from the Carson Pass visitors center. After a soda and some fresh fruit we pushed another 5 miles to shower lake. :: Sitting 8 miles out of Lake Tahoe Jared’s phone has one bar of service. We decided to go for a  Hail Mary and called our good friend Michi who just happened to recently purchase a VROB. Touchdown! We just happened to come on the day inbetwwen it being rented. :: We packed up and made the final push into town just before dusk. Arriving at her place we threw our laundry in, jumped in the hot tub, jumped in the pool and then straight to the steam room. Another ending to a perfect day. :: Thank god too. My air mattress now has 12 small holes in it and I was not looking forward to another night on the cold ground. Time for a new pad! :: #carsonpass #pct2019 #pct #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #thruhiking #hikertrash #hiking #backpacking #ultralight #sectionhike #lasher #lash #outdoors #pctig #trekthepct

Round Top from the PCT
Up in the mountains on the Lemons Rally. Our rally pics are on the @thepiledrivers Instagram account.
A nice park ranger offered to take our picture. #lemonsrally #carsonpass #thepiledrivers #dodgea100
Managed to find a trail with a little more attitude than the dirt roads I've been used to for the last few days, I actually needed to use 4wd for this spot #solidaxlesummit3 #toyota #4runner #4x4
More from our hiking adventure over the weekend! Such a incredible hike I need to get up there and explore some more! #highway88 #carsonpass #hikingismytherapy #hikecalifornia #wildflowers
The trail to Lake Winnemucca
2017 was a very good year for wildflowers at Carson Pass!  Miss them.  #carsonpass#carsonpasstrail#wildflowers#sirrranevada#alpinecounty#hwy88
Need to plan another road trip soon
